Tarifa named second most popular camping destination in Spain this summer

TARIFA has been the second most visited camping destination in Spain during the months of July and August, with 48,766 visitors.

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the Tarifa campsites have remained one of the most frequented in the country.

Only Tarragona, with 57,862 campsite users, has surpassed Tarifa. The third most popular site, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), was another Catalunya destination, Torroella de Montgri (Girona) with 48,615 visitors.

Located at the southernmost end of the Iberian Peninsula, Tarifa is primarily known as one of the world’s most popular destinations for wind sports.

But perhaps it’s the two strong winds that shape the climate in this part of Spain (the Levante from the east and the Poniente from the west), that also means that on average a visitor’s stay is fleeting.

In fact, among the 25 Spanish tourist spots with the highest number of visitors to their campsites, Tarifa registers the lowest average stay, with only 2.84 overnight stays per person on average, far from the average in Tarragona, for example, which is close to five days.
